to be prepared for ready set going as a apprenticeship we've proposed this for several years it is wise for someone that is coming out who is a typically disengaged community african-american or latino or other who doesn't really have the means and part artist rehabilitation pathway to help them on a vocal track inside the kid system i think is high time the city invests it not much on $300000 i believe it will go a long way in men's jail in san bruno and the women's like a la ca chip model trying to train the women in our custody in a
9:31 pm
culinary prepare service and do it in the post release facility so they have the post release vocal training the number was $207,000 that will include the illness and preservation it is necessary not fund for $198,000 the conversation is shalom appropriate it is great that san francisco is adopting body cameras for hiss its police department but combaemz need to be in prisons and jails i believe this is the tip of prisons and jails will be do you want body cameras and san francisco didn't see the light wore a bit naive we're not
9:32 pm
holding up to our own commitment to the transparency and accountability built not only relying on fixed xaemz but employment with the body cameras it lessens liability and false allocations and enhances i think the trust that needs to be enhanced with many of the same people that the police come into when they're not in our custody and next recidivism and reduction of crime and the vocal we explained the women's center cafe i believe that is it i'm more than happy to conclude the form part of our presentation. >> supervisor breed. >> thank you. i have a couple of questions i wanted to ask thank you for your presentation
9:33 pm
i just want to talk about the transport program especially because i you do not understand why it cost so much money while the population has decreased can you give me an understanding why the additional money is needed to transport does that mean you'll hire additional staff or whether this be existing staff with over time i mean how does that work i don't understand that. >> we've done hundred and 34 staff right now as is presented in the graph earlier that is contributing to i think adhere levels of overtime i don't know how we use the existing staff we're like the police department but in a different way has a minimum intoerp staffing and responsibility that is mou and
9:34 pm
cb a required so when we shut down a jail sometime ago two years ago we redistributed our jail population our staff got redistributed, too, we still have to maintain that area staff is in the vetted to the size of the jail population but we're still struggling with under staffing needs so one $.3 million is what we calculate as what it takes to have per shift 3 shifts in a day per shift that two people two of our derpz will go to the stations to transport and book into county jail who they arrest viruses the mroldz one or two police officers you can do the
9:35 pm
math it is bigger than our numbers accepted a wagon around and picking up people. >> it this existing staff or new staff. >> i believe new staff we're already understaffed. >> so how will be be able to hire the staff without having an academy class. >> well 12 in the running and graduating soon wore still understaffed i'll have to shift the existing staff if we want to do that not take awe our under staffing problem. >> for the positions for the new academy class are already funding in the upcoming year. >> yes. their graduating. >> so you'll move those graduates if possible you'll be able to move them or shift the existing staff to do the program. >> i would put more seasonal
9:36 pm
people frankly people that have a certain level of fold train not new but people that have been tested as in the pilot late last year and the new graduates will fill in the new entry or freshmen positions. >> no plans for a new academy class. >> we keep asking that wasn't accepted in the proposal wore hoping for an academy class there 2016. >> but basically with the existing budget moving in this current fiscal year you have the capacity to potentially manage this program. >> i think so but it is sort of moving fund if poetry to paul not taking care of the under staffing in the jails but wire committed based on that $1.2 million to make it work.
9:37 pm
>> so with our current population and your counter staffing levels and this didn't i'm not speaking to the staffing level with san francisco general hospital and other things but more importantly the jail population do you have information that helps me to understand the capacity versus the needs for a sheriff's deputy like maximum and viruses the number of deputies i have. >> in terms of the anytime staffing requirement we're more than happy to brief you if you like come to your office or i to ours we'll show you the requirements of minimum staffing and our obligations especially, when someone is out on long term disabled military leaf non-productive time and they're
9:38 pm
not going to be returning any time soon we can't fill that position except on overtime if somebody is out wore stuck and that's where delineated in terms of the positions where we have people out for awhile. >> okay. and i want to ask about the city grant program you have the funding you have for grants balboa park i know that i guess there are a lot of departments that have programs for reentry i think one of the things we've talked about in past hearings was the fact that funding for phone calls and funding for commissary was used to help to facilitate the programs provide bids the department and our department helped to change the rates so
9:39 pm
they don't impact the families and inmates negatively so potentially there's a gap i want to understand is the grant opportunities that you have actually go to serve the population of the inmates that are currently housed in the prison. >> that's all there are. >> so that's what the grant money is for . >> the grant we disbursed it was only $50,000 two grants of the innovation challenge grant we were award was $50,000 maybe a little bit less up this is what your referring to in our graph. >> okay i thought i saw a different number i don't remember. >> the mentally ill grant is
9:40 pm
for our population for the mentally ill population. >> but none to assist outside of the jail it is within the jail population. >> well or to avert the jail populations we fund 95 percent of the pretrail if you look at our jail population it hovers at 12 hundred our ceiling is 4 hundred and 50 that number alone is an important number to be noted our alternatives to incarceration population is about one thousand so we fund the pretrial diversion program and other programs that people don't have to be courtyard that's an example of outside custody in helping people to avoid custody but still remain account
9:41 pm
colleagues any other questions we'll tall call up our next department. >> do we want to go to the budget analyst represents. >> we'll not skip that. >> madam chair and members the commission sxhepd on page 43 of the report the recommended recommendations total $17,000 plus in 2015-2016 and of that amount 528 plus are ongoing savings and 91 thousand are one time savings this allows an increase of $10 million plus for 5.3 percent in the departments 2015-2016 our recommended reductions to total 6 hundred plus in 2016-2017 of that amount
9:42 pm
640 are ongoing savings and 50 thousand are one time savings those allows an increase ever 17 or 3 point of percent in the 78 we are working with the department and report back to the committee on our final recommendations. >> thank you mr. rose. >> supervisor breed and i had two more questions for clarity the $114,000 for the community grant organization so those monies are coming from where exactly. >> i don't have that number in front of me. >> cfo the sheriff's department i believe you're referring to the increase in the grant program 2015-2016. >> yes. >> that's a combination of the cola that was awarded to every department last year by the board and 64 additional dollars
9:43 pm
that be coming back o intoxicate fund additional positions to help us registration in the affordable health care. >> and this is like for pretrial diversion. >> in fact your overall is 4 point and the remainder is in reindustry which we have the pretrial diversion moving people out the jail system. >> the $710,000 for capital improvements that had been done to the brilliant facility. >> yes. we had a security in our 850 bryant facilities very old equipment security equipment needed emergency repairs we declared on emergency for capital improvements this is
9:44 pm
fund that going to repairs that needed to be funded many many years ago our concern was that it deals with cameras and security video, that deals with jails being locked or not located but we've not been recompleted by the money for the emergency money in the capital for the other projects that are unfund it all got moved to the fund and the other capital improvements are now unfunded. >> okay. thank you. >> sure. >> thank you supervisor mar. >> thank you sheriff ex-wherever you give presentations you're opening our easy to the trespassed and the domino of the jail i share with supervisor breed in some ways the concern the jail population
